Danny Beus, current secretary of the <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/CacheDems/?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf”>Cache County Democrats</a>, has announced that he will make a run for chair of the local Democratic Party. If elected, Beus would replace longtime leader Vincent Wickwar, who has decided not to seek another term.
New party officers will be chosen on Saturday, March 25, at the annual Cache County Democratic Party Convention, which begins at 9:00 a.m. at Logan High School (162 W. 100 S.). Doors will open at 8:00 a.m., with the convention being held in the school’s “large” auditorium.
Beus, who also leads the Cache Dems’ Latino Caucus, said local Democrats are unimpressed with the national Republican Party’s recently-introduced healthcare bill.
“It’s an attack on people who couldn’t afford healthcare and have it now, and millions and millions of people are going to lose it,” said Beus. “We think it’s going to be a disastrous healthcare law. It’s not really a healthcare law because they’re not providing healthcare. They’re taking it away.”
Beus said not just Democrats oppose the new proposal, citing that many Republicans have also spoken out against their own healthcare bill. If passed, the measure would replace the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare.”
